This three-day masterclass will provide both beginners and experienced artists with the basics to create a variety of containers for books, prints, photographs and other three-dimensional objects. Through hands-on work, participants will create soft-cover wraps, hard-case portfolios and several styles of boxes, including clamshell and fitted lid structures. An assortment of decorative papers will be provided to customise each in-class project. In addition, instructions for customising each structure to fit personal projects will be provided.
